Bylsma also relayed that both Bortuzzo and Gibbons could potentially perform in tonight or tomorrow’s contest against Washington – per Kasan. Bortuzzo has been out with an upper-body injury and Gibbons has been sidelined with a lower-body ailment.
Vokoun, whose been out since the start of the season due to a blood clot in his pelvis, didn’t practice with the team yesterday - per Kasan - but skated today. There’s still no update in terms of when he’ll start playing in games. He is progressing in the right direction though.
